* Note: Sorry for re-posting this so many times...there was a very irksome spelling mistake in the title and I just had to get rid of it!
I am sad to say that I missed yesterday's deadline for the Folio Society's illustration competition for Albert Camus' The Outsider. But here is a quick illustration I've put together, post-deadline, in response to Mr Mersault's prison experience, upon remembering the familiar sights and sounds of Algiers from outside his cell.
I am mainly just pleased that I've managed to put a person into one of my pictures that isn't a silhouette or a tracing, at last! This guy was inspired by Petra Borner's lovely figure drawing. She may have saved me from an on-going struggle.
